Any athlete dealing with joint pain or tenderness can have a PRP injection administered into the ailing joint or tendon. The growth factors and healing properties of the plasma will stimulate the cells to produce new cells and blood vessels. The body will also begin to produce collagen that can help joints and tendons become free from pain and improve their overall functionality. PRP injections may also help athletes recover faster. If they have suffered an injury such as a tendon or ligament injury, the PRP injection can accelerate the healing. This accelerated healing may reduce the time needed for a full recovery and help the athlete get back to work faster.
